Campbell billed $75,000 by the county for inmate housing

Posted: Updated:

CAMPBELL, Ohio - The City of Campbell is being asked to pay Mahoning County $75,000.

It's money owed for the housing of prisoners at the Mahoning County Jail.

Campbell City Council received a letter from the county prosecutor's office making them aware of the debt, now that Campbell has been released from fiscal emergency.

"We worked with Campbell to hold off with anything until we knew that they would be clear to pay us. And so the letter went out to request that Campbell pay for their inmates at the jail,"said Mahoning County Commissioner Carol Rimedio-Righetti. "Every other entity is paying right now. We have Youngstown that pays, everyone that uses that jail is paying us for their services that we give them for the jail. If they don't pay then we in the general fund have to pay for those people that are housed in the jail."

Campbell Mayor William Vansuch recommended to city council that they pay $35,000 by December 1st, and the rest in early 2014, as suggested by Mahoning County.
